Resource description

Discusses the arguments presented by Peter Cane in his paper, Theory and Values in Public Law, noting his defence of legal positivism. Considers the nature of public law through the concepts of functionalist legal thought, legal positivism and rationalism, the basic values in public law and examines Cane's argument that lawyers practising in this field should focus on values rather than theory when addressing central issues.
